. > > thanks angie. when teachers in california peeked into their pensions and found investment in a gun maker linked to the connecticut shootings, they reacted. and so did the private equity firm that made the investment. and it underscores just how easy it is to assume someone else has vetted investments made on behalf of employee groups. maggie ellis, a california teacher, active in state and local teacher organizations, had no idea her pension funds were going to freedom group-- gun makers, including one that made the assault rifle used to kill 20-children and six adults in connecticut, last friday. assault weapons are outlawed in california. ellis is not alone. a lot of people didn't know. it's led california's treasurer bill lockyer to criticize the investment saying teacher retirements "should not be invested in guns illegal in california. these weapons have no place in our communities. our families and children are safer without them." "is it possible to vette everyone? no. but you should be able to research hot-button issues and hot-button companies." ellis says the teachers relied

shortly after one of its largest clients, the pension fund for california's teachers said it's reviewing its half- billion dollar commitment to cerberus... which also invests for california's public employees. "these pension funds hold more power than we think." john challenger says california's teachers are not alone in demanding more transparency. "certainly its an increasing trend." the selling of freedom group also coincides with renewed debate in washington to restore the federal assault weapons ban that expired in 2004. "we must engage in a thoughful debate about how to change laws and culture that will allow violence not to continue to grow." "as we continue to learn the facts, we'll examine what would be an appropriate and constitutional response that would better protect our citizens." challenger noted stock prices of several firearms manufacturers are dropping. "if they look at their projections, those companies may not make as much as their thought they'd make as of a year ago." but not all retailers have chosen to suspend sales. outdoor products retailer, cabela's still adv

conference of state legislatures to estimate states such as california could gain $4.16 billion, texas and new york nearly $1.8 billion each - nationwide, an estimated $23 billion dollars in state tax revenue. "all states face budget situations where they need to look under every rock to resolve it." "the states see this 'get-out- of-jail-free' card and their tax revenues declining, and they're screaming that there's huge opportunities there." three interstate commerce bills in congress would grant states the right to collect sales tax from online merchants. the bills are aimed at the net's biggest retailers - amazon and ebay - and allow exemptions for small online retailers. "amazon is not fighting it strongly. they're defending a fallen fortress. they're doing deals in california rather than challenge this in many, many states." for people who live in states with no sales tax, the pending legislation would not change that for online purchases. today's the day if you still have christmas gifts to send. more than 1,500 stores have already signed up to take part in "free shipping monday
